Zoopolis: What will animal liberation look like?

Friday, August 24, 2018
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Event Type:
Direct Action Everywhere
Location Details:
Berkeley Animal Rights Center (2425 Channing Way, Suite C, Berkeley)

'Zoopolis: A Political Theory of Animal Rights' is a book that deals with the many questions that arise when we start to envision animal liberation.

- What should we do about animals that have become completely dependent on humans?

- What should we do about animals that are part of our urban areas but are not domesticated?

- What should we do about animals in the wild?

Zoopolis argues that AR theory has spent too much time focusing on negative rights (don't kill, don't confine, don't abuse). Instead, this book explores what positive rights we owe our fellow animals who have been wronged by our society.

This event will be a short talk by Corey Rowland and Orlando Torres followed by a group discussion.

PS: Not necessary to have read the book, but we highly recommend doing so anyway.

Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) is a grassroots network of animal rights activists. Through open rescue, demonstration, and disruption, we are creating a world where every animal is safe, happy and free.

DxE cultivates a welcoming and supportive community. We ask that all those who attend our events (online and offline) respect our Code of Conduct which can be reviewed at

LOCATION/DIRECTIONS: Most of our events are held at the Berkeley Animal Rights Center located in Suite C at 2425 Channing Way. If taking BART, get off at Downtown Berkeley station, walk south on Shattuck Ave (for 5 blocks), make a left on Channing Way, and walk another 5 blocks until you see the big red pillars - you’re here! We strive to offer walking buddies to attendees who feel unsafe walking to/from BART or other short distances in the area - please email us at sfbay [at] to request a walking buddy.

PARKING: There is a parking garage at the center (free for the first hour) and metered street parking in the vicinity. Please remove all valuables from your car.
